ProsPearson is a strong company that has weathered the financial crisis very well. They nurture talent and believe in treating their employees respectfully.

ConsBecause of their culture of nurturing employees, there is not a lot of turn over. Usually that is a good thing but sometimes it serves to keep stale ideas in circulation.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo stay competitive, digital competencies should be brought in to accelerate progress.
